Seniors for Kids Society (SKS)

Since 1996, Intergenerational relationships have been established which gives seniors the opportunity to volunteer with younger people allowing shared wisdom, life experiences, talents, skills while avoiding isolation. Seniors have a desire to encourage young people to reach their full potential. Young people develop a sense of who seniors are by participating in activities leading to positive lifelong skills and memories. Communities are enhanced where everyone benefits: seniors, youth, and families.Seniors for Kids Society promotes intergenerational relationships. Program delivery occurs within schools, senior centers, Bethany Care Centers, senior lodges or other public gathering places. All groups meet on a weekly basis following the school year. On a selected day of the week time spent with students may vary from one to three hours per week. Volunteering time is very flexible throughout the year. Seniors 55+ are encouraged to participate.Become a member!
